Hi, I’m James

I'm a guy with a passion for animals, who tries to stay in shape by running and cycling, and strives to be fair-minded and balanced in daily life. You'll find a lot of that kind of stuff within the writing entrails on this site. I've been known to have the odd opinion on other random and personal stuff, too.

I design and build web sites and applications

I'm an in-house designer, developer and project lead. My design work focuses primarily on the area generally referred to as user experience, while I often build things with WordPress. Simpler still? I can take a digital product from needs assessment through launch.

You can see a small overview here, but more is coming soon.

I write a journal

Recently, I've begun to focus seriously on the issue of change, primarily with regard to making change in my own life. In particular, the following quote by Hunter S. Thompson crystallized the way I'd been thinking for some time:

Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living within that way of life. A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.

So, I'm analyzing my thought process, decision-making and priorities, and reading daily, choosing more science, culture and philosophy.
